The Yard Plays Offense and Defense

Whenever I go out to do anything in the yard, I’ve come to accept that the yard is just going to kick my ass, because the yard has more weeds than I can ever pull and it has beautiful plants in it I get distracted by.

I did learn the important difference between grass and non-blooming bluebells. Non-blooming bluebells pull out of the bed rather easily. Grass, of course, does not.

But the roses are blooming! And they look lovely. Even the crappy rose that never does very well put out one bloom as if it say “Don’t kill me!” And look at those allium! And my first peonies are blooming. They should be really gorgeous next week.
